I guess this does not qualify as a YellowPad anymore since ggv is now
the default (and opens the file correctly).

I reported it upstream:

Comment 2 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-10-12 16:52:06 EDT
Should be fixed in gpdf-2.8.0-2. Apparently the package did just need
to be rebuilt.

For the record, maintainer comment on what could have caused this:

Yeah, sorry.

GPdf uses private gnome-print headers...

And private stuff doesn't have ABI-guarantees...

The plan for 2.10 is to stop using that, of course.
